The tuner I work with now (TBS5980) is very small and can be tucked away nicely behind my TV. A big device won't fit.
Downside is a LOT of hassle to get the equipment going. As you may have noticed, I'm not in a hurry. I work on this particular project on and off.
Got the hardware working (more or less), now the streaming code is subject of my efforts. Things are going slowly, but surely
Thanks for your interest,
